Notes and Ideas

Ideas and Plans

SCPs

  • Predestination: The Foundation Temporal Department goes back in time and accidentally wipes itself from history.
  • The Last Light: What if near-death or drug-induced experiences of living an entire life are actually our real life? Or what if both are so vivid that we can't tell which one is real and which is the dream?
  • Patriot Act: An anomalous legislative bill with antimemetic properties - possibly connected to an anomalous US senator.
  • Ghost bears. Ghost. Bears.
  • Fermi's Last Theorem: Where is everybody? Well, apparently, every other intelligent civilization in the galaxy has mysteriously gone extinct due to a common catastrophe.
  • Cape Cod is an anomaly. The peninsula is hiding some sort of eldritch entity or something
  • The Helios Movement: "your god is [REDACTED] holy hell" - inspired by the legendary coldpost
  • Ananta-shitshow: An over-the-top parody of SCP-3000
  • "4D Ur-Nugget" - have you ever wondered where chicken nuggets actually come from?
  • Still Life: Idea from the Tropical theme of the JamCon. An old beachside hotel has a tray of tropical fruit, and eating it will lead you to an alternate dimension containing the creator of the hotel, who has hooked himself up perpetually to an anomalous machine that keeps the hotel in perpetual paradise to atone for his perceived sins and mistakes.
  • A Cat's Tail: President James Garfield lives on in the Garfield comic strip?
  • Age of Miracles: The 001 proposal to end all 001 proposals, featuring every single other proposal as subanomalies and byproducts of this "true" one. Also being one of the only proposals with a truly optimistic tone. The Foundation at the edge of tomorrow. Human history is a grand causal loop. And still, we keep on surviving.

Tales

Essentially, 2 ideas for series - Crosslinks, a series of tales taking 2 SCPs and writing in an unexpected relationship between them; and Contact, a canon about Foundation recovery specialists

  • Crosslinks: - SCP-3294/bees
  • Crosslinks: - SCP-3200/SCP-2747
  • Crosslinks: - SCP-3031/Kate McTiriss's Proposal
  • Crosslinks: - SCP-682/SCP-2718
  • Contact - ~13 tales planned for Season 1 (first one entitled "My Condolences")
  • A Clockwork Universe: not about CotBG, actually. Is about time travel, as always. The theory of the Clockwork Universe is that God does not participate in the universe's affairs, but simply creates it and lets it go. It also refers to the scientific idea that with enough knowledge, we can predict future states of the universe, particle by particle.

Scrapbooks/Notes

My sense of self felt molded in terms of others. It horrifies you deep inside, but it's all you can do to survive. You do everything you can to sustain absurd, nonsensical expectations until it breaks you.

"We stand upon the brink of a precipice. We peer into the abyss—we grow sick and dizzy. Our first impulse is to shrink away from the danger. Unaccountably we remain… it is but a thought, although a fearful one, and one which chills the very marrow of our bones with the fierceness of the delight of its horror. It is merely the idea of what would be our sensations during the sweeping precipitancy of a fall from such a height… for this very cause do we now the most vividly desire it.”
—Edgar Allan Poe, "The Imp of the Perverse"

Lurked three years, started a subreddit, and after more than eight months of work, my first SCP. There were many moving parts and plot elements to this that were difficult to get right, and virtually none of the words you read here are the same as my first draft of this. This piece is my take on a very personal sort of horror - one without any external threats or monsters, built purely out of what lies within humanity itself and nothing else.
